[completed in April 2015]
The story: The fact that Paul who owns 3 Mere-Made surfboards is David's co-worker and surf buddy might have contributed a lot to David's interest in getting a Mere-Made surfboard too (that is called word of mouth and this how I get 90% of my customers without trying to offend Mark Zuckerberg). Because David is a distant co-worker (same company but different skills and building), he used Outlook to schedule a "board meeting" with me. Those meetings I accept right away !
The shape: Like his surf buddy, David loves surfboards and he is very eager to explore new shapes. For this one, he wanted a shortboard for the winter swells but a bit wider to keep some easiness to paddle into the muchy waves too. A polyvalent shortboard for the 4-6 foot wave range.
The artwork: David sent me a very cool triangle pattern which was very close to be a fractal design. I said it would take me 245 hours to make this so we decided for a more simple pattern inspired from a previous board (see it here) which still took me 3h of labor.
